This wildlife sanctuary is a fantastic place where they rescue, repair, rehabilitate and release indigenous injured animals. The staff are passionate about what they do which makes your visit special. Catch one of the tours which are very informative and you get to see the featured animals up close. You can buy food to hand feed the roaming animals which is a delightful experience. A fantastic day out for all the family.
The guide was fantastic, knew her subjects well and was friendly, tolerant and obviously enjoys her job. Mathematics was not the receptionists strong point however, charged for a family because she said it was cheaper even though only one senior and two children. The kids enjoyed it though and learnt some new information.
